Quirky Writing, Done Right

Welcome to My Website!

Hello, and welcome to the website of Gail Ann Gibbs. I write speculative fiction, mysteries, short stories, and generally whatever weird idea pops into my head. You can learn more about me in my Biography, and about my books in Books.


TWO GREAT WRITING CONTESTS: Got kids? There's still time for them to enter the Mary Ann Hutchison Memorial Short Story Contest for Youth. Write a short mystery and maybe win a prize. It's free for youth from 9-16 , deadline Feb 1, 2020.

For Grownups, there's the Jim Martin Memorial Short Story Contest, running from Jan 1 to June 1, 2020. Write a short (2,500 words) mystery and maybe win a prize. First place is $200. The fee is $15, and includes feedback from the judges.

Both contests are hosted by Arizona Mystery Writers, fun and mystery writing and reading in Southern Arizona.

NEW ANTHOLOGY! - STORIES AT SUNSET: The Grand Canyon Authors Club is a group of southern Arizona authors. Some of us contributed stories to a group anthology, available soon online and from individual authors. My deepest admiration goes to editor Andres Rodriguez, for herding all the writer cats into producing an excellent anthology.

SPRING INTO TUCSON FESTIVAL OF BOOKS: March will be here sooner than you think, so block out March 14-15 on your calendar for lots of book talks and fun stuff. Come see me in the Independent Authors tent from 1 to 2 on Saturday.


Stay updated by following me on your favorite social media. I can also be found among the Arizona Mystery Writers and Saguaro Romance Writers, both great groups for writers and highly recommended!
